What Can Chiropractors Do? - Here are some of the top conditions they treat



Exploring the Broad Scope of Chiropractic Care

We often think of chiropractors as the go-to professionals for back or neck pain relief, but their expertise extends far beyond these common ailments. Chiropractic care encompasses a holistic health approach to health, addressing a variety of muscle, bone, and joint issues, as well as referred pain—where discomfort in one part of the body may originate from another. 


Real People, Real Relief

A lot of people find their way to a chiropractor through a friend or a family member who's already been. That's because there's still a bunch of myths floating around about chiropractic care. If it's your first time, you might feel a bit jittery walking in, wondering if it's gonna hurt. Spoiler alert: it doesn't. Plus, did you know? Choosing chiropractic care can actually save you some cash on healthcare each year. Here's the scoop—chiropractors don't do the whole drugs-and-surgery gig. Instead, they focus on spine and joint health and kickstart your body's own healing powers. 


Chiropractic Treatment Plans for Various Conditions

Chiropractic care isn’t a one-size-fits-all deal. It’s tailored to tackle the specifics of each condition, focusing on long-term health and immediate relief. Chiropractors focus on the patient, versus trying to make one solution work, so they are able to treat a range of conditions. Here’s what to expect for some of the most common conditions, and a few that might surprise you to find out. 


Back Pain

Feeling like every movement is a chore? Back pain can turn simple tasks into major ordeals. In our initial consultation, we'll assess your spinal alignment and look for the root causes of your discomfort. Our holistic chiropractic approaches for back pain treatment typically includes a series of adjustments over a few months, aimed at realigning your spine and alleviating pressure points. Our goal is to enhance your mobility and reduce pain, allowing you to move freely and without discomfort. Chiropractic care provides a natural and effective alternative to invasive surgeries or long-term reliance on pain medications.


Neck Pain

When your neck refuses to turn smoothly, it feels like you're stuck looking in one direction. We start with a detailed evaluation of your cervical spine to identify any misalignments or tension. Effective chiropractic care for neck pain often involves customized adjustments focused on restoring your neck's natural mobility and reducing pain. The aim is to let you turn your head with ease and comfort, whether you're driving, working, or engaging in your favorite activities, without resorting to painkillers.


Headaches & Migraines

Imagine a relentless pounding in your head that just won't let you focus or enjoy your day. Our approach begins by identifying potential triggers related to spinal alignment and muscle tension. Through regular chiropractic adjustments, we aim to alleviate these triggers and reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches, providing a drug-free solution to manage and prevent migraines.


Have you heard of Cervicogenic Headaches?

Cervicogenic headaches might mimic migraines but they're a different beast altogether. Unlike typical migraines, which are primarily neurological and often vascular, cervicogenic headaches originate from issues in the cervical spine—the neck area. These problems in the cervical spine can refer pain up into the head, creating a headache that’s often mistaken for a migraine. However, the cause isn’t in your head—it's in your neck. And there’s more to it—posture plays a part too. Poor posture can make your headaches more frequent and severe, so we also focus on improving your posture. We’ll guide you through exercises designed to strengthen your neck muscles, helping maintain proper alignment and function. This not only helps alleviate current pain but also wards off future headaches, keeping you healthier and more comfortable in the long run. 



TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder)

Dealing with TMJ is like having a constant reminder of your jaw with every conversation and meal. During the initial consultation, we explore how your jaw opens, closes, and moves side to side, looking for misalignments or tension that might be contributing to your discomfort. Treatment often spans several months, with a focus on adjustments and muscle therapy to realign and relax the jaw. The goal? To let you chat, yawn, and eat without pain. Compared to other treatments, such as surgery or heavy reliance on pain medications, chiropractic care offers a less invasive approach. It focuses on mechanical adjustments and functional improvements to provide lasting relief.


Frozen Shoulder

When your shoulder feels locked and reaching out becomes a struggle, the world feels just out of touch. We start by assessing how "frozen" your shoulder really is, identifying the factors that contribute to your discomfort. It's not just about diagnosing—it's about understanding your daily challenges and setting the stage for effective treatment.

We then plan a treatment that often spans several months, focusing on adjustments and exercises to thaw out the stiffness and restore movement. Our chiropractic approach provides a less invasive alternative to surgery, aiming for gradual and sustainable improvement so you can regain your reach. 


Sciatica

A sharp pain shooting down your leg can make every step feel like walking on pins and needles. Discover chiropractic solutions for sciatica relief, starting with an initial diagnosis of the specific causes of your sciatica, whether it's a herniated disc or something else. The treatment plan usually spans a few months, focusing on spinal adjustments to relieve pressure on your sciatic nerve. Our goal is to reduce your pain and improve your mobility, helping you return to your normal, active life. Read here for more on Sciatica Pain.


Pinched Nerves

It's like an electrical buzz or a burning sensation that won't go away, disrupting your comfort and peace. Our initial consultations aim to locate the exact source of nerve compression. We then use targeted adjustments to free these nerves, allowing them to function without interference. The treatment aims to restore full nerve function, alleviating pain and numbness.


Bulging Discs

That constant back discomfort suggests something deeper is misaligned within your spine. Using imaging tests, we visualize your spinal discs to assess the extent of bulging and its impact on surrounding nerves. Treatment often involves several months of chiropractic care, including adjustments and decompression therapy, aimed at reducing disc protrusion and easing pain.


Spondylosis

Feeling older than your years with each stiff movement, spondylosis brings age into your joints before time. In the initial consultation, we assess the extent of wear and tear and customize a treatment plan that includes regular chiropractic adjustments. Our goal is to manage symptoms and maintain mobility, slowing down the degenerative process and improving your quality of life.


Spinal Stenosis

Imagine feeling a squeeze inside your back, limiting movement and comfort as you try to go about your day. We diagnose areas of spinal narrowing and create a treatment plan that involves regular adjustments and possibly other therapies to relieve this pressure. The aim is to improve nerve function and reduce discomfort, enhancing your overall spinal health.


Plantar Fasciitis

Every step feels like you're walking on a bruise that just won't heal. Plantar fasciitis turns each footfall into a painful reminder of your inflamed plantar fascia. In our initial consultations, we assess your foot mechanics and look for alignment issues that might be exacerbating the problem. The treatment timeline typically involves several months of targeted adjustments and therapeutic interventions, such as ultrasound or soft tissue work, designed to reduce inflammation and promote healing. The ultimate recovery goal is to reduce heel pain and improve foot function, allowing you to walk, run, or stand comfortably. Chiropractic care offers a proactive alternative to corticosteroid injections or surgery, focusing instead on correcting biomechanical issues and providing supportive exercises to prevent future flare-ups. Read here for more on plantar fasciitis. 


Tennis Elbow

A nagging pain on the outside of your elbow makes every lift and twist a challenge. During our initial assessment, we evaluate the severity of tendon irritation and customize a treatment plan that includes specific adjustments and muscle therapies. Our objective is to alleviate pain and restore strength to your elbow, helping you return to your daily activities without discomfort.Read here for more on elbow pain. 


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Numbness and tingling in your hands can turn every typing session into a painful ordeal. We carefully assess wrist alignment and nerve health to pinpoint the cause of compression. Our non-surgical treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome typically involves a series of adjustments and therapeutic interventions aimed at alleviating pressure on the median nerve, with the goal of restoring normal hand function and reducing symptoms.


Degenerative Disc Disease

Bending and twisting can become a calculated risk when your discs begin to wear down. Our comprehensive evaluation helps us tailor a treatment plan focused on pain management and maintaining flexibility through regular chiropractic care. We aim to alleviate discomfort and improve your spinal health, offering an alternative to more invasive surgical options.


Otitis Media (Ear Infections)

You might be surprised, but ear infections aren’t just for kids; adults can struggle with them too. We look into how spinal misalignments might be impacting ear health across all ages. With some gentle adjustments, we aim to enhance overall function and reduce the frequency of these infections, helping everyone get back to their daily routines more comfortably.
